. ♪ chocolate. >>> the pentagon is facing massive budget cuts in the coming weeks. if congress fails to act by march 1st, the series of cuts will be made to the u.s. military's defense capability. here's more -- capability. here's more. >> reporter: during the fall debate, president obama said the sequester, quote, won't happen. now his white house is saying domestic programs will be cut 9% and military programs cut 13% this year, unless congress takes action. >> putting our fiscal house in order calls for a balanced approach, not massive indiscriminant cuts that can have a severe impact on our military preparedness. >> reporter: republicans think they gave a lot of ground during fiscal cliff negotiations. a spokesman per speaker boehner said the president got his higher taxes last month with no corresponding cuts. the tax issue has been resolved and spending is the problem. meanwhile, military leaders are sounding the alarm. >> instead of being a first- rate power in the world, we turn into a second-rate power and that would be the result of sequester. >> reporter: the white house said fri
the day after four thieves pulled off this smash and grab robbery at the zales jewelry store in pentagon city. the same gang of thieves? police in both arlington and frederick are comparing videos and notes. >> we were open today, all day, and tomorrow will be open completely full staffed back to business as usual because valentine's day is coming. >> lieutenant pennington says arresting one of the men should help them close the case. as one person on the street in frederick tonight told us, there's no honor among thieves. brian. >>> bob barnard tonight. taking a live look outside. calm and quiet out there now. changes may be coming. it's looking worse for our neighbors to the north. sue has the details. sue, what do you see? >> for the first time this year, we had a lot of clippers coming through, but now there's a southern storm that is trying to get organized and that will be a player. let me show you what i'm talking about as we check out our radar. you can see a batch of snow north of chicago and a lot of heavy rain down east of houston traveling along the gulf coast. it appears
budget is shrinking but our enemies is growing. for the first time in two years, the pentagon says it can't afford to keep two aircraft carriers in the persian gulf. the truman would have left today from norfolk, virginia. leon panetta blamed it on sequestration saying if congress can't rewrite the law, things will get worse. >> instead of a first rate power in the world, we turn into a second rate power. that would be the result of sequester. >> you won't find this chairman arguing we need to do more with less. you'll find me arguing if that happens, we need to do less with less. >> as the u.s. and most allies decrease spending, adversaries are doing the opposite. china is slated to overtate the u.s. in 2035. >> you've seen double digit increases in chinese defense spending for 15 years. that not only gives pause to the united states but concern for the region as well. >> two years ago robert gates browbeat nato allies to spend 2% on defense but when france wanted to send force to say mallie, the u.s. paraded airlift and -- provided airlift. in the middle east, the gulf states are increa
the pentagon. like don't cut a single thing, but i'm going to go out, i'm going to keep talking about rich americans. i'm going to keep talking about corporations. i'm going to play to my base instead of talking -- telling middle-class americans they're going to have to make some sacrifices. along with the rich. it's that mika, it's a permanent campaign. and i guess if this is how he wants to run things, he's president of the united states, good luck over the next 3 1/2 years. >> i don't understand why loopholes are even an argument, first of all, why he has to go this far. why he has to keep talking about it. >> hold on a second. >> i know. >> we all agree that these loopholes need to be closed. >> well, let's do it. why is it so hard? >> i've been talking about supporting warren buffett's idea. >> why are we still talking about it? >> because the president only uses it to demagogue in a permanent campaign. he never talks about the other side of it. he always says oh, it's the rich. >> that would be loopholes. >> don't tax you, don't tax me, tax the rich guy behind the tree. >> steny hoye
in the state department or the pentagon are there. i think at some point the united states government and the white house have to make a decision that syria is an actual danger to america's national security interests. it is not something we can wash our hands from. and there are serious dangers and implications to the united states and the president actually to ask its national security team for realistic options that then he request gather his team and debate and decide about. there hasn't, i think, been a serious debate even with thunited stasgovernment as to what might be our three top options what are the costs and benefits of each. and if we were to pursue one of them, how would we do it. >> is there a legitimate argument that this destabilizes turkey to some degree, an important country to the united states, and a nato ally, andrew. >> absolutely. thousands of syrians go over the border into turkey every day. and it's very easy for pkk fighters, kurdish fighters to meld into those refugees, to go across the border and carry out terrorists attacks insidef tuey. no government in
, of course, working on the force. andy lampry, thank you so much. i need to move to the pentagon as we're getting some news on this story in california. barbara starr, tell me what you're learning about servicemen and women being on alert now. >> absolutely brooke, resonating at the pentagon, this man was a former navy lieutenant in the naval reserves. and now we are told that u.s. navy bases in california and nevada are on, quote, maintaining a heightened security posture, a heightened state of alert as they too are on the lookout for this man. and they do have some reason to know that he has approached the u.s. military in the last few days. a couple of days ago, they learned -- they discovered that he had stayed at a navy motel facility in san diego, and on wednesday he approached two navy sailors at his old unit when he was in the reserves, had a conversation with them, they did not realize they had been talking to dorner until they saw all the news reports. so a lot of concern now, in fact, a day ago, the point loma naval base shut down briefly while they thought he might be there
good-bye for leon panetta. the pentagon sends the boss off with a formal ceremony happening today, even though he is likely to be on the job for at least another couple of weeks. panetta spoke yesterday before congress, said there will always an debate over how much military power to put around the world. >> united states military, as i've said, is not and frankly should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world. u.s. military has neither the resources nor the responsibility to have a firehouse next to every u.s. facility in the world. >> former senator chuck hagel has been nominated to replace panetta. that confirmation vote continues and has been postponed. >>> a look at this massive crowd that filled the streets in tunisia. this was a public funeral of an opposition leader shot dead outside his home wednesday. thousands of grieving and angry folks marching with his coffin to a cemetery. many believe it was a political assassination. riot police have violently put down several public demonstrations since that sh
the sequester in a hurry, then yes, it's a real problem because it doesn't let the pentagon begin to plan and distribute, if you will, the cuts. but at the end of the day, whether it's defense spending, education spending, health spending, what always matters more than how much you spend is how you spend it. and so i'm not, at the end of the day, all that worried about how much we spend, whether it's on defense or anything else. you just want to have the time to make some intelligent cuts rather than have to make them literally in a matter of days which would probably mean that readiness more than anything else would be cut out of the defense department account. and that's probably the one thing you don't want cut out of it. >> sam stein, you're close and yet so far away over there at the jump seat. what are the odds that the sequester actually takes place? we know the president's proposed something to push them back a while. are we going to see these kind of cuts, the ones that were outlined in the sequester proposal? >> i think the odds are pretty high, to be honest. i don't think there
to be furloughs at the pentagon, the pay increases for the troops will not be as large as he would like, and then the president today added on to them, said, look, this is going to affect seniors, food safety, the poor. so what they are setting themselves up for is really this argument they are set to have and i think we're going to hear from the state of the union, over these automatic spending cuts that are due to take effect. the president is saying, we cannot let this occur and he's ready to clearly have that fight with republicans on this. >> panetta leaving office with an extraordinary acknowledgement that the defense department, the cia, state department, all of them recommended to the president that the u.s. should start arming, directly arming syrian rebels but the president decided that was not necessarily a good idea. that's pretty extraordinary. >> it was extraordinary. he was asked about it at a congressional hearing. what is interesting to me is someone who covers washington, it's not that there is disagreement at certain points over policy between the secretary of defense
